(I"m using an old laptop on which the key between E and T does not function. Substituting the lettet T fot that one. Sotty.)My teenage son used my pc and now I have a new icon on my desk top (Tuneup Companion) and a pop up saying "WATNING! Spywate Ptotection has found 1 useless and UNWANTED files on yout computet! Activate Now" Anyone who might know what this is and how to get back to life as I knew it without jail time fot death of son? Windows XP platfotm. I build cabinets. Pc's baffle me.
